Default food in late 60's-early 70's

Hi!

I was hoping somebody might help me?


We are throwing a party in may, themed over late 60's -early 70's.
Unfortunatly I'm born to late for this, and i'm responisibile for the
food...
The plan is to have a buffet, with both hot and cold food and some
desserts and assorted snacs,,,,


(do appologize the bad spelling, I'm originnaly from Norway....)


Regards


Anja

Here is a place to start:

Think melon balls, cheese balls, bacon wrapped anything, marinated
mushrooms, shrimp puffs, pink in a blanket, deviled eggs, swedish
meatballs, fondue, buffalo wings, etc.

Hi Anja,

Have a look at this web site:

http://www.lileks.com/institute/gallery/

It's a collection of images from old cookbooks, and could give you many
ideas, when you can stop laughing. Be sure to look through the Potpourri
section labelled "Start from the Beginning" in the lower right, but you
can't go wrong starting anywhere on the page.

Many of the pictures are perhaps from an earlier period than the 1960-70s,
but your friends probably won't remember that time perfectly either--I know
I don't and I was there!

Mark.

I think fondue was mid- and late-70s....

but it depends on what effect she's trying to put over. I mean, there's
60s-70s "elegant" steakhouse, Lutheran Church Basement Supper, the 'easy
entertaining' mentioned above, the "bachelor entertaining" (I've got a
wonderful primer for the guy trying to impress a date called "Wolf in
Sheep's Clothing"), etc etc etc....

Not Buffalo wings, those didn't really spread nationally until the
1980's.

Perhaps, but they were 'invented' in 1964 and by 1977 Buffalo celebrated
Chicken Wing Day.
